Is meditation the way out of fear

Letting go of fears - how meditation can help

So if we want to basically learn to deal with our fears better and to stay calm even in situations of stress or panic, meditation can help us. So that you can better integrate meditation into your everyday life, mindfulness experts have put together these five meditation tips:

1. Make a date with yourself

Taking up time for yourself is not easy, especially when you are always on duty for your partner, family, friends or work. Often you first take care of the others before it is your turn. But it is important to consciously take time out again and again, because this is the only way to have the energy to take care of others in the first place. You should therefore consciously create time out for yourself. Enter them in your calendar, protect and enjoy your time-outs.

2. Switch off and fade out

Saying goodbye to everyday life can be difficult at first. To make it easier for you, you should consciously try to block out all possible disruptive factors in advance. Headphones in, sleeping mask on - anything that helps to fade out everyday life is allowed.

3. Be adventurous

Everyone is different, this also applies to meditation. This is why it can be helpful to try different things, especially at the beginning. For example, try meditating at different times of the day. This is how you can quickly find the right time for you. The same is true when it comes to position. It is best to try out again and again at the beginning which position is most comfortable. This can be sitting, on a chair or a sitting ball, but also lying down, on a mat or the sofa.

4. Small steps, big impact

Especially for meditation beginners, it is helpful not to undertake too much at first. It is better to start with short meditation units and gradually increase over time. Just seven minutes of meditation can have a big impact on your well-being, lower your stress levels and make you happier. The 7Mind meditations are therefore only seven minutes long - ideal for everyone whose everyday life does not leave much time.

5. Good things take time

Mindfulness is a skill that needs to be trained. Anyone who has never meditated before may find this form of calm and inner attention to be getting used to at the beginning. The important thing is that you stick with it and try to develop your own routine. Even after the first meditation you will feel the first relaxation and inner peace. The more regularly you meditate, the more intense the relaxation becomes. In the long term, your own meditation routine will help you to react more calmly and calmly even in situations of fear or panic.
